Report: Dolphins, Colts interested in Saints head coach Sean Payton
Although he’s signed through 2017, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton could be a hot commodity after this season. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, multiple teams are expected to inquire about Payton.
Among those teams are the Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts. The Dolphins are currently led by interim head coach Dan Campbell, while Chuck Pagano is seemingly on the hot seat in Indianapolis.
As Schefter reports, there is no sign that the Saints or Payton, himself, would consider offers from other teams. And since Payton is still under contract, the Saints would be in line to receive compensation if he does want to leave New Orleans without being fired.
As of now, the Dolphins are the only team with an interim head coach, as the Colts aren’t a sure bet to fire Pagano.
